HOW DURHAM’S HEALTH TECH STARTUPS ARE CHANGING THE CITY – AND FUTURE – OF MEDICINE
KIM LACHANCE SHANDROW | JUNE 8, 2017

Nicknamed the City of Medicine, Durham, North Carolina has long been home to a vibrant, cutting-edge health care industry. Starting with the launch of the city’s Research Triangle Park (RTP) in the early 1950s and catalyzed by the rise of the local Duke University hospital system in the ‘70s and ‘80s, the city emerged in the last half the 20th century as a major hub for biotechnology, pharmaceutical and other health care-related companies.

Today, as medical treatments and health care delivery become increasingly digital, a new wave of innovative, technology-focused health care startups are now carrying Durham’s “City of Medicine” reputation into the modern era.

Drew Schiller’s innovative health care upstart, Validic, is among them. His 200-employee enterprise is leading the way in the exploding digital patient data sector — and very intentionally doing so from the epicenter of North Carolina’s Bull City.
